Gov. Jay Nixon is urging renewal of exemptions from Missouri's open records law for security systems of government buildings and policies for responding to terrorism.
The exemptions protecting such information from disclosure expired at the end of 2012.
Nixon has scheduled news conferences on the topic today at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and the Missouri State Highway Patrol General Headquarters in Jefferson City. Law enforcement and public school district officials are scheduled to take part.
Wealthy Republican donors are starting Christmas early. Somewhat uncharacteristically, GOP donor David Humphreys donated $25,000 to Democratic Governor Jay Nixon on Friday. Humphreys is the head of a Joplin based roofing company and usually donates exclusively to Republicans – in fact, he donated about $1.5 million to conservatives and conservative organizations just this year.
